Kris Baha’s newest meta venture with Ghosts In The Machine is set for a futuristic rave. Part cyborg and part metallic-coated dystopia, the concept of the project focuses on a world where AI controls all systems. “Our flesh and code are trapped in networks encrypting our ghosts. The merging of our consciousness in the digital realm.”
Thus, the second single from the Kris Baha and Ghosts In The Machine collaboration is titled “Flesh & Code.” The track’s fast-paced tempo recalls a machine booting up—loading its millions of files at hyper speed—while the vocals itself almost feel mechanical. The warmth of a human is nearly absent and it asks the question: what is real? “Metaphorically, the track represents the desire to break free from societal constructs, experiencing alienation, doubts and glitches that plague one’s existence,” writes Baha. “It conveys a sense of not belonging and the search for a place where one truly belongs.”
“Flesh & Codes”‘s drum and bass influences—a clear nod to 90s club genres—create a tension with razor sharp synth saws and tinny accents. The single lies in the lineage of Billy Idol’s boundary pushing Cyberpunk album while, simultaneously, would fit firmly within the soundtracks of Johnny Mnemonic or Lawnmower Man.
The album will be released on Fleisch Records later this year.
